RFID Safe Technology
RFID stands for ‘Radio Frequency Identification’. This is a wireless non-contact radio frequency that will compromise an individuals personal identification.
How it works
RF enabled cards such as credit, debit or government issued identificaiton cards carry a unique radio frequency identification chip. This chip contains personal details about the holder such as card holder’s name, address, phone number, account details and employee information.
Thieves can obtain this information by hacking the radio frequency, from up to 10ft away, using an RFID reader, and then ‘clone’ the personal information onto their own cards – resulting in the thieves having full access to the card holder’s account details.
